The official site offers a download of the default distribution of Zepto. This is good for starting out. However, at some point you might want to add some optional modules and remove some of the default ones you don't need, to keep the size at a minimum. That's when you need to check out Zepto's source code and use the build commands.
You will need Node.js installed on your system.
$ npm install $ npm run-script dist # do a custom build $ MODULES="zepto event data" npm run-script dist # on Windows c:\zepto> SET MODULES=zepto event data c:\zepto> npm run-script dist
The resulting files are:
If you install CoffeeScript globally, you can run
# one-time operation $ npm install coffee-script --global $ coffee make dist $ MODULES="zepto event data ..." ./make dist # on Windows c:\zepto> SET MODULES=zepto event data c:\zepto> coffee make dist
Zepto modules are individual files in the "src/" directory.
